Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) in Chattanooga
Unsatisfied with the outward appearance of your midsection despite diet and exercise?You may be a good candidate for Abdominoplasty. This procedure significantly reduces a protruding abdomen and drooping skin resulting from weight loss or pregnancy.
Better known as a tummy tuck, an Abdominoplasty is particularly effective for women who have had multiple pregnancies and , consequently, stretched the abdominal muscles and skin beyond non-surgical repair. The abdominal area is tightened and the excess skin covering the abdominals is removed.
A tummy tuck is a very common procedure that is performed under general anesthesia and takes around three hours to complete. The incision is placed on the lower abdominals and can be concealed even in the most revealing swimwear. Once the incision is made, excess fat and skin are removed. Then, abdominal ligaments are firmed and tightened.
We also offer the mini tummy tuck.
